I couldn't "design" my perfect mate, besides a few restraining factors - namely she'd have to be roughly as smart as I am, and relatively easy-going. The rest is what makes life interesting.

Oh, and I could tell you what I'm physically attracted to, but that's not that interesting. Think "hot scandinavian".

Well it's done and over with.

She came over as expected on Friday night, and during our walk she started talking about the movie Chicken Little and how she wanted to see it real bad. I waited until we were heading back towards her house and the conversation had died a bit, so I figured I'd just try something simple and I just asked her if she wanted to go see the film with me some time this weekend.

She stopped dead in her tracks and said something to the effect of, "Oh... Well... Uh... I've never really thought of you in that way before. You're a nice guy and everything but you're just not for me. I was just happy going on our little walks every once in a while, I hope you're not mad." I tried to act like it was no big deal, but I guess she could tell that I was feeling bad and let down by that so she just said, "Sorry... I'll see ya later," and walked off.

Well I'm certainly upset by it, but I guess I'm more pissed off by the way she said it, the tone of her voice and her shitty attitude about it.

So yeah, this sucks. I don't know what I did wrong, or if I mixed up the signals, but I have a feeling that I won't be hearing that familiar knock on my window for a while.

Spiral out, my friend. You will find your way back to yourself, we all will.
I'll be waiting, and shall see you on the other side...

This is where you could have widened your eyes, held your hands up (motioning "stop") and said, "Whoa there, cowgirl. I go see movies with friends all the time, male and female, sometimes one, sometimes many. I think you just stepped in a proverbial hole there, with your other expectations."

Then watch her reaction...



(You wouldn't be losing anything, since she's just made her feelings clear...you'd only be making her feel like she just put her foot in her mouth in a big way, that's all. It's harmless, and completely reverses the shoot-downer/shoot-downee positions in just a few seconds. Not to mention it's funny as hell, and works just as well with either gender on either side of the conversation.)

No you didn't, she just gave you the wrong signals. Dropping by every saturday night, talking about how bad she wants to see that movie... It's her mistake if you ask me.

Only the 'banned' title is missing

Dude stop attaching random stuff.

Eric: Try not to lose her in the way you were together before. That would be even a greater loss for you two both.
This happened to me earlier in a likewise situation, she just didn't see me as the one to share her entire life with. Perhaps she just likes to wait a bit longer so that she wouldn't have to wait so long before she can get married, girls think about that stuff. That really doesn't mean that you did 'something wrong' or anything.

The way I hear(read) it, I think she really appreciated that you told her like this, but didn't know how to say she doesn't want it.. Don't forget it's been quite a shock for her too.
Please don't let this sadden your heart, everything went in a fair way but she just didn't want to. That's life, and her decision. Better keep your head up and keep going.
Not as if she shouldn't mean anything to you, but with the knowledge that it's just as it is.

Nah, men and women can't be friends. It's either romantic or it's nothing. No matter what the rhetoric about platonic relationships is, it does not pay to make emotional attachments to members of the opposite sex. Someone always wants it to be more than that and somebody always gets hurt.

I've been on both sides of that in my life.

Being 'just friends' with a woman means you get to do all the stuff a boyfriend would do, just without getting anything back. It's the same for women.

I am sorry, but once again I will have to correct you. Scor and I are good friends. And that is it - Just friends. I am a girl and by all of his nipple pics here in the forums he has proved to be a guy Yes, he does help me out with things but I am always there for him when he needs me.

Again, I think experience will contradict your "correction". I've seen this a million times both ways. Men and women are not close friends.

My last girlfriend had a "friend" like that named Sal. Sherry knew she could just use Sal and treat him like a dog. I don't think it took a man to understand that this "platonic" relationship wasn't exactly unilaterally "platonic".

I told Sherry that it was Sal or me. Not because I was jealous of Sal, but because I guess I got tired of seeing him follow her around like a dog getting his ass kicked. That and it created gossip I didn't need.

If you think you can maintain friendships with close male friends while you are in a serious relationship, you are a fool.

I know this isn't politically correct, but it's the truth. Men or women who you are involved with are not going to tolerate Sal or Sally.

You can put down the politically correct propaganda about how women and men interact, and base your opinions on observation. If you do that, you might be able to avoid the politically correct 50% divorce rate.

She's right. And I also want to add that I've never had a relationship, friends or otherwise, in which I felt as comfortable with as I do with Missy. When I don't know who else to call, I can always call her. Between us there is never a need for apologies or regrets.

We can also read each other's minds, almost. She can say one word, and I can tell exactly how she's feeling, and sometimes even what she's thinking, and I bet she can do the same with me. With her I never need to edit my thoughts or feeling or words.

If I were to create a perfect imaginary friend in my mind, it would be just like her.

Dang, I'm sorry my advice led you wrong. Tell her it was all some dumbshit on the internet's fault or something. Actually that'll probably just make things worse if she knows you're talking about your relationship to people on the internet.

I hope you can keep the friendship with her.

Don't worry about it. I think she was lying, and she had thought about it before. She was probably just shocked that I asked her then. I like Michgelsen perspective of it: she was giving me the wrong signals. I mean, damn, no other girls I know would sneak out in the middle of the night and come to my house in below freezing temperatures just to go for a walk around the block.

Well anyway, I talked to her today and she said she would stop by sometime this weekend, so we'll see how it goes. I hope it won't get all weird, though I have no idea what to talk about now.

Spiral out, my friend. You will find your way back to yourself, we all will.
